Honestly, I think that is a fairly boring rendition. Seems like they are just practicing, and Bobby's playing seems off at points. I don't think he plays anything too imaginative either. I find this Other One to be a hell of a lot better, however I unfortunately can't attribute much of that to Mr. Weir aka RBNW :P. He surrounds himself with great musicians in this clip, and that's what results in a good performance:

All that being said, I do enjoy some of Bob's playing in recent years, but I find it to be very hit or miss. I love when he puts a good team of musicians together, something he is definitely good at doing. There's been a lot of great music that's resulted from TRI, so I definitely like what he's been up to lately, for the most part. I almost see Bob as more an orchestra leader these days than a leading musician in his projects. I think he should continue to try to keep things fresh by playing different styles with different musicians. I don't think they should milk Furthur any further. If he started a band with Kimock, Chimenti, and Wasserman, I would be very happy.

This is the kind of the stuff I like best with old Bobby:

Bob, you're obviously just bitter towards Mr. Kimock right now because you thought you were going to be doing those Ratdog reunion shows, and then Kimock scheduled a bunch of other stuff.

This is also very good:

I know you still like Jackie.
